Swap Round 2 - Month 3

oh my goodness! if it hadn't been for the all day crop on Saturday, I would have done NO scrapbooking for the entire month of April! as it was, I ended up doing the minimal to meet my monthly goals: 2 layouts + 2 cards for Operation Write Home and the cards for the swap.

of course no "before" photo. I am so forgetful!!

the first card is a circle so I of course die cut another circle to go in it! I added a sticker I won in the crop drawing. the colors were a perfect match!

the green butterflies were included in the kit. I decimated one to create my greeting for this card.

I feel like this was my most creative card. I used the die cut card to form a frame around my birdcage sticker. I am sure I am not the first to think of this, but I felt pretty clever on Saturday!

this last one has a totally different feel to it. very masculine. all I added to the kit was the little brads and the Thickers.

odd for me,I didn't use a sketch for any of the cards.

be sure to go see what everyone else did with the kit!
